A Sense of Home (ASOH) creates first ever homes for former foster youth who “age out” of the foster care system having never been adopted. ASOH’s village of volunteers comes in and supplies everything to create a home. Recipients pay it forward, working alongside a community of volunteers and an all former foster youth staff to create the homes. ASOH began in Los Angeles and ready to replicate in other regions.
A Sense of Home is led by the recipients of the program. Watch this video created by the ASOH leaders capturing exactly why ASOH is needed and how they are being the change that they seek in this world.
IN 2016 A Sense of Home was honored as a top 10 CNN Hero.
Harry Connick Jr celebrates the success of A Sense of Home and goes live to a home a creation.
